I made some top 10 players look pretty ordinary
World number 45 Nick Kyrgios said he had made some of the top 10 players “look ordinary” this year and added he was confident he could beat anyone at Wimbledon this year. Kyrgios, 27, has been playing good tennis throughout the year and he has won three top 10s this year.
Kyrgios’ last top-10 win came two weeks ago in Stuttgart, where he beat Stefanos Tsitsipas 5-7 6-2 6-4. “I’ve played the top 10 players in the world this year and made them look pretty ordinary. I know where my game is.
I know that if I feel confident I’m playing well, I’m able to turn it on when I want. Do I feel like I can beat anyone in my day’s draw? Yeah. Good sleep, good rest. I think it is.
Make sure your body is in good Nick,” Kyrgios said, per Essentially Sports.
Kyrgios against Paul Jubb
In the first round of Wimbledon, Kyrgios faces the British joker Jubb. Jubb is ranked just outside the world top 200 and Kyrgios is the absolute favorite going into their game.
“I feel like I can put myself in his shoes very well,” Kyrgios said. “I used to be that kid who got a wildcard at the Australian Open. It was really good to be there, soaking up everything, the media, the fans, everything, the hype.
I know how he will feel. He’s going to go and he’s just going to play freely, nothing to lose. Kyrgios has had a good grass season so far and he hopes to end it with a strong run at Wimbledon.
After reaching back-to-back semi-finals in Stuttgart and Halle, Kyrgios won his first game in Mallorca before abdominal pain forced him to give Roberto Bautista Agut a surprise in the round of 16. Kyrgios can certainly play well on grass and tennis pundits all agree that Kyrgios is the player to watch at Wimbledon this year.
